Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa was on Tuesday night arrested after one person was shot dead in a scuffle between rival ODM Party supporters in Ganda Ward in Malindi, Kilifi County.

The Malindi MP was detained alongside four other people who were in her house when the police stormed in.

“We are not sure where they have been taken but its outside Malindi,” said our source

The police led by Kilifi County commander Patrick Okeri had camped for hours outside the legislator’s house before they got access to the main gate.

It is alleged that Malindi MP stormed the house of Reuben Katana, ODM candidate in the upcoming Ganda Ward by elections, where a meeting was underway.

Jumwa is said to have stormed the venue reportedly querying why such a meeting would be held at night after the campaign period had lapsed.

According to a source who spoke to Nairobi News, Gumbao Jola the uncle of Katana was shot dead during the scuffle that ensued.

The meeting was meant to plan on how ODM agents would handle the by-election on October 17.

During the confrontation many people sustained injuries.
